Distribution of informative SNPs throughout the genome. Each chromosome was divided into 10 M base pair bins. Bins near centromeres or near the ends of chromosomes containing only a very small number of SNPs were excluded. Bins contained an average of 3650 SNPs. The figure shows mean informativeness for assignment by bin for the entire genome. The mean informativenss for assignment is relatively similar over all the bins, although the small observed differences are statistically significant (p < .0001 with one-way ANOVA). Results were similar when 1 M base pair bins were evaluated.
